ACK, I haven't tested initrd much TBH, I usually don't use an initrd, 
and when I do it's a small busybox-based rootfs.

This looks weird, I'll check it out (we have an unmatched here so I'll 
try to get my hands on it sometime next week).

Did you try kdump ? Do you get the same error ?

BTW this is what I use for testing most of the time:

For kexec:
kexec -l /mnt/shared/vmlinux --reuse-cmdline
kexec -e

For kdump:
kexec -p /mnt/shared/vmlinux
echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger

Thanks a lot for your time !

Regards,
Nick
